Q & A

spools

who? me and my book photography

what? spools of thread, silly

when? ongoing

where? in my studio

why? cause Juliana's not here and there's no one else to whom I can point out how silky and luminous these 50 year old spools of thread are, yet it needed to be done just the same.

They are beautiful, aren't they? Oh, why yes, they are! How nice of you to notice.

  5. Ah, yes, I have some very (who knows just how) old spools of thread that were on a spool holder I bought in an antique shop. That poor old thread is probably as rotten as can be, but I just can't get rid of it!

    Hmmm, could you get your love of old things from me? Oh, but wait a minute: that's great 'cause you'll still love me when I'm even older. Let's see: will I still be silky and luminous? Only time will tell!

  9. I don't really think you are losing it...I just think you are in a very silly mood today and need to get away from your computer!

    Now all you need are your babies to come home from school so that you can all be silly together! Go make some cookies or something yummy!

  10. I actually have some that belonged to my grandmother and are over 60 years old. I use them for decorative stitching since they are beautiful, but probably not that strong now. Though they are cotton and that's pretty sturdy.
